While most of the country is still buried under polar vortex snow and freezing temps, the style world is already thinking about Spring. I can’t lie I am too, with the holidays way over and the grind of the New Year making me long for a vacation. I’m also ready to bust out in bright colors in fashion and in beauty. I’m just oohing and awing at all the new spring makeup collections¸ filled with such soft and pretty colors that I can’t wait to get my PJ hands on!
The Spring Renaissance Collection from Laura Mercier is no exception, with girly shades that scream warm weather. I had the chance to try out the Metallic Crème Eye Colour in Copper Sunrise. This water proof shadow promises lush color in a high metallic pearl finish and boy they weren’t kidding!
One small dab is enough, delivering sharp, bold color that I crave in shadow. For those of us who on a beauty budget, this is a major plus! At a $23 a tube, we want this bad boy to last. It’s also very lightweight and no streaky business! It almost seemed too easy creating this look.
Because the color is so bold¸ pairing it with softer, powder shadows in the same color family is your best bet. You can go with a nude lip color to keep the attention on your eyes or a complimentary lip color for a fun night out! There’s so many ways to rock this shadow and for me, versatility is everything!
While there are other more affordable cream eye shadows out there¸ if you’re looking to splurge this is a safe bet!
Alloy, Golden Mist, and Platinum are other available shades. Also be sure to check out the rest of this limited collection (the Enlightenment Eye & Cheek Palette looks ah-mazing!)
